Even though I got so excited last Saturday at the High Times Cannabis Cup by all the dabs and hash oil pen vapes that I actually bought one, something that happened on Sunday that totally blew my mind.
I ran into this cool guy called Grand Daddy Mike (and yes, he has a close connection to the small group that developed the original Grand Daddy Purp strain). We had some nice discussion, and then GDM whips out this collection of black pens out, asks me what’s my favorite strain, and hands one to me. He said, “Sip on that”, so I put the end to my lips, inhale, and suddenly…Blue Dream!
It’s filled with GDM’s own CO2 extracted hash oil, with terpenes added back in for taste. The beauty part of it is, there’s no charger, no switch, no learning curve, no torches. It’s electronic, it’s silent, it’s smart enough to turn on only when you inhale, and it’s so discreet that Felicity felt comfortable enough to take a hit off this thing in a crowded cafeteria, and not a single puff of smoke, vapor, or anything else escaped!
And it may be due to the fact that I used it to get high and watch one of my favorite Star Trek movies (First Contact: The One With the Old Hippie), but it occurred to me that this is the simple, clean way that people will vape in the 25th century. If it’s not already a thing yet, I’d like to suggest the word “e-dabs” for this kind of technology.
This amazing little device is available from SPARC, and from Sonoma County Collective, where it’s listed as the GDM CO2 Glycerin Charged Extract Refillable Vaporizer for just $20. That may be a mouthful, but it told me some extra stuff I didn’t know before, as Grand Daddy Mike didn’t get a chance to tell me all the specs. And refillable makes sense, since Mike is clearly a do-it-right kind of guy.
But I still wonder how it all works!
